Sinn Féin/IRA Enniskillen Bombing Commemoration & Re-enactment

Following the success of Sinn Féin/IRA’s commemorations of their IRA heroes at Loughgall and Clonoe earlier this year, Michelle O’Neill and Gerry Adams are to host a celebration on November 8th of the Enniskillen Remembrance Day Bombing IRA volunteers’ on the 30th anniversary of their heroic action on behalf of Ireland’s freedom, sovereignty, equality, respect and a mandatory Irish Language Act.

For the re-enactment, IRA volunteers in full civilian clothing will once more plant bombs under the cover of darkness and detonate them by remote control and retrace their escape route for supporters.

Human Rights’ Observers from the non-party, non-sectarian Pat Finucane Centre will be on site to monitor any grievances or complaints by members of Sinn Féin/IRA who might be harassed or oppressed by the PSNI or who might feel inclined to complain to or to seek financial compensation from Her Majesty’s Government and or the European Court of Human Rights.

Former journalist Ann Cadwallader, now working with the Pat Finucane Centre, will be signing copies of her new book, “Lethal Allies: British collusion in Ireland”.  Cadwallader’s other book entitled, “The IRA – Ten Thousand Human Rights Violations in Ireland and Britain” is currently not being written.

A representative of Tony Blair will take applications from any on-the-run IRA volunteers who have not yet been in a position to receive their Letters of Comfort.

The theme of Gerry Adams’ address is expected to be a reiteration of one of his more honest speeches in Enniskillen entitled, ““But what’s the point? The point is to actually break these bastards – that’s the point. And what’s going to break them is equality…That’s what we need to keep the focus on – that’s the Trojan horse of the entire republican strategy is to reach out to people on the basis of equality.”

Michelle O’Neill will then move her lips in sync to a vetted equality oration by experienced ventriloquist Gerry Adams.

Those attending the commemoration may gather in the carpark of the nearby Catholic church and process from there to the War Memorial, as they did at Loughgall.

Afterwards, a reception and get together of old comrades will be held where only Irish may be spoken.  Scores of translators from the Sean MacStiofain Branch of Conradh na Gaeilge will be on hand to enable the majority of republicans to communicate through the Irish language.

Asked for a comment, Michelle said: “Make no mistake about it – I will always remember and commemorate our patriot dead – and each of our fallen comrades who gave their lives for Irish freedom. I see no contradiction whatsoever in commemorating our republican dead while reaching out to our unionist neighbours to build the future – Orange and Green together on the basis of full equality and mutual respect. We are proud of our freedom struggle. We are especially proud of our republican patriot dead and each of our fallen comrades with whom we are gathered to remember, honour and whose lives we celebrate here today.”

Belgium has withdrawn an offer of asylum to Sinn Féin/IRA leaders who might yet be the subject of hearings at The International Criminal Court at The Hague which has jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes.

This is NOT a script for the Northern Ireland comedy show, “Give My Head Peace.”

One thought on “Sinn Féin/IRA Enniskillen Bombing Commemoration & Re-enactment

  1. Rather amusing, and not a thousand miles from where some of them would like things to be. I think that one has to grow older to appreciate the mind-numbing stupidity of what was done in the name of ‘honour’ and other slightly manic aspirations; sadly, of course, in some the acid just becomes more concentrated.
    I’ve not so much mellowed as floated over to the relaxed /whisky /seriously-interested-in-other issues /alzheimer’s-prone ages, and so don’t get as upset about it all now. I do wonder, though, how avowed socialists, republicans, revolutionaries and nationalists square their views with the mainstreams of those disciplines, which tend to be fervently internationalist, and why so little verbal battle takes place between the followers. Too embarrassing?
    To Mr O’D: great respect.
